Regardless of who wins, the NFC representative in the Super Bowl will have 9 regular season wins. One game above 500.

At least the Eagles were banged up and playing in the best division in football....what's Arizona's excuse?


Eagles 30

Cardinals 17


No idea on Balt at Pitt...should be good though!



What's the expected kickoff time for first game?(3:30?)

I believe Pittsburgh defense and offense are superior to Baltimore. Pittsburgh also beat Baltimore twice(at least once for sure) in the regular season. I have the Eagles and Steelers in a Pennsylvania Super Bowl

I have 2 tickets to the NFC Championship game, lower level, 20 yard line, plus a parking pass if someone wants them. Only problem, the game will be played in a different stadium 2,141 miles away.

Remember all the problems that the Cardinals had in getting its playoff game vs. Atlanta sold out (needed two extensions)?


Guess what? Once they knew they were going to host, they sold out the NFC championship game in less than 10 minutes! So, no blackout in Arizona for this one...

yep....the cards clinched the division & couldnt get a bye anyway so why kill themselves for nothing.


thats why they should change the seeding rule....qualify the 6 teams as they do now but seed by record....so chargers win the division at 8-8 & still would get a playoff spot....but they should be the 6th seed & play at the 3rd seed....wasnt fair they were home against a 12-4 colts team.


winning your division should clinch u a playoff spot....not necessarily a home game though.


also then teams like the cards might try & win more games even after clinching to improve seeding.

Or, looked at another way, nine more than the Lions.

System's good the way it is - the focus is on your own division. You can't compare records from different divisions because opponents are different.


I might consider weighing a head-to-head game in the seeding if they played each other during the season (Indy played @ SD and beat them), but that's not really a good idea either because it may involve a #6 leapfrogging a #5 and that may not be warranted.

They even increased the seating capacity to 70,000+ for the game, which I thought the NFL didn't allow.

Literally, yes.


Figuratively, it's more like nine thousand more than the Lions.

9-6-1

Anyone know if a team that had a tied game during the season ever went to the SB?

The Baltimore Colts won Super Bowl V after an 11-2-1 season. The Super Bowl IX winning Steelers team was 10-3-1.


There have also been some losing teams with ties - the Chiefs in I, the Dolphins in VI, the Vikings in XI, and the Broncos in XXII.

That Steelers team was in SB IX.
